This boxed set of flash cards has been revised and updated to reflect the most recent changes in the AP World History curriculum.

Each topic is also assigned one of six categories, further enabling students to arrange them in any order that suits their needs.

A History of the Arctic

Author: John McCannon
Publisher: Reaktion Books
ISBN: 9781780230764
Release Date: 2013-02-15
Genre: History

Bitter cold and constant snow. Polar bears, seals, and killer whales. Victor Frankenstein chasing his monstrous creation across icy terrain in a dogsled. The arctic calls to mind a myriad different images. Consisting of the Arctic Ocean and parts of Canada, the United States, Russia, Greenland, Finland, Norway and Sweden, the arctic possesses a unique ecosystem—temperatures average negative 29 degrees Fahrenheit in winter and rarely rise above freezing in summer—and the indigenous peoples and cultures that live in the region have had to adapt to the harsh weather conditions. As global temperatures rise, the arctic is facing an environmental crisis, with melting glaciers causing grave concern around the world. But for all the renown of this frozen region, the arctic remains far from perfectly understood. In A History of the Arctic, award-winning polar historian John McCannon provides an engaging overview of the region that spans from the Stone Age to the present. McCannon discusses polar exploration and science, nation-building, diplomacy, environmental issues, and climate change, and the role indigenous populations have played in the arctic’s story. Chronicling the history of each arctic nation, he details the many failed searches for a Northwest Passage and the territorial claims that hamper use of these waterways. He also explores the resources found in the arctic—oil, natural gas, minerals, fresh water, and fish—and describes the importance they hold as these resources are depleted elsewhere, as well as the challenges we face in extracting them. A timely assessment of current diplomatic and environmental realities, as well as the dire risks the region now faces, A History of the Arctic is a thoroughly engrossing book on the past—and future—of the top of the world.

Red Arctic

Author: John McCannon
Publisher: Oxford University Press on Demand
ISBN: 9780195114362
Release Date: 1998
Genre: History

Red Arctic chronicles the history of Stalinist Russia's massive campaign to explore and develop its Northern territories during the 1930s. Author John McCannon draws upon groundbreaking archival research to recount the dramatic stories of the polar expeditions - oceanic voyages, aerial rescues, and record-breaking flights - that became the pride of Stalin's Soviet Union. McCannon also exposes the reality behind these exploits: chaotic blunders, bureaucratic competition, and the eventual rise of the GULAG as the dominant force in the North. Red Arctic also traces the development of the polar-based popular culture of the decade, making use of memoirs, films, radio broadcasts, children's books, and cultural ephemera ranging from placards to postage stamps to show how Russia's "Arctic myth" became an integral part of the overall socialist-realist aesthetic that animated Stalinist culture throughout the 1930s.
